Morbius: Directed by Daniel Espinosa. With Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris. Biochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.
I remember when word came out that Sony was going to make this movie, then they hired Jared Leto in the main role, I formed a picture of what I thought the final product would look like, and with some very minor exceptions, this is exactly what I thought it would be, for better or worse. The actors are present, there’s music, some very well done special effects, Sony trying to shoe horn in MCU connections, and a plot that makes enough sense to not be terrible. The best I can say is that I was impressed with the effects, but those weren’t enough to elevate the rest of the film to be suggestable. The plot just barely makes sense, and Sony has yet again taken a horrific villain from the Spider-man universe and tried to turn him into a hero.
